Rick's Steak Seasoning II

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

This one has a history. My DW, Sue, and I used to eat at Outback Steakhouse quite a bit. We liked their Outback Special and I attempted to get the spice mix recipe, but was unsuccessful. I made an stab at reproducing the taste and came fairly close. Then tragedy struck; I had a hard drive failure and somehow the steak seasoning recipe escaped the backups. Instead of trying to reproduce it I was determined to make it better without using seasoned salt that was in the original. This is the result. Please use it for your own enjoyment, but if you have a commercial interest in mind, please contact me first.

Holy cow this is hot! If you're a wimp like me, start with less cayenne. My lips are still burning. I think this would make a great wing coating.

We loved it although it might be spicy for kids- our 12 year old had to eat it with ketchup! Thought it had good flavor.

This is now the only way I grill my steak! The only slight adjustment I make is that I use fresh garlic and chopped sweet onion... I also only use one tablespoon of cayenne pepper (because I'm usually grilling for my wife too and I like more spice than her). Best rub out there!! The review by Chris is way off.... Everyone that has had it has asked me for the recipe. Thanks Rick!
